We booked a charter with "Game On" for Thanksgiving Day. We were looking forward to another trip as we did a charter with Capt. Chris back in July and it was excellent. The day was a cold one (63 deg) for the Keys but Capt. Chris sent us an email before and told us to dress warm. We took his advice and we were glad we did. It was freezing and very windy. We stayed inshore mostly with a little fishing by the bridges and some patch reefs where we hooked into some Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail and grouper (Red/Black). My daughter caught the biggest fish of the day on some light duty tackle. 1st mate Gifford was awesome to work with because he was very patient with all of us during some stressful times. The bait kept getting caught on some rocks and breaking the line. He spent time teaching my daughter how to reel in grouper and how to hold the pole so the line would not break. He was a real pleasure to fish with and my daughter had a great time. We will book again when we come back to the Marathon, FL.

Captain Chris took us out to a reef for some snapper fishing. We had our children with us and he really took care of us. His first mate (Gifford) was also very patient with the children. They taught everyone on the boat how to operate the reels, hold the line and reel in on the fish. He also filleted our fish after our trip and we took it to a local restaurant to have it prepared. The experience was great and we will come back again! Oh, and make sure you bring sunscreen as the boat is an open fisherman so you have very little shade to escape the sun.

Chris took our family out fishing this afternoon. Our goal was to have some great family fun with a mix of boys and girls. He was incredible with the kids and made sure they all caught fish. The action was constant and the kids all have some good fish tales (all true ones). We have some great pictures of each kid holding a large fish or a shark over the side of the boat. When we got back they could not wait to text the pictures to their friends.

Chris was incredible. I would highly recommend him. He met ALL of our requests and we cannot wait to go fishing again. Chris has set the bar high with this incredible trip!!!

This was the first time offshore for my husband, brother and sister-in-law and my first time in about 15 years. Chirs was very patient with us and hooked us up. We had a great time and would call Chris again when we come to Marathon.

Chris Morrison rocks! Four fishermen, creative approaches, thoughtful conversation, and the perfect balance of go get-‘em combined with patience. He’s a great guy and he knows his craft very well. We enjoyed it so much we signed up for a second trip and went hard core for tarpon. We are looking forward to our next adventure with one of the best Captains in the Keys! Our group has fished all over the U.S. and Chris makes it a fantastic experience!
